|Additional Categories (optional)||Interviews, Academic Pieces|
|What is the main focus of your site?||Movie Fail is dedicated to promoting smaller films alongside bigger blockbuster movies. We have a small staff of writers, all with a passion for writing and for film. We cover everything from op-eds and interviews to analyses, reviews, and podcasts.|
|What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?||Our goal is to develop a strong, smart, consistent readership that thrives on communication and discussion about film. We also hope to give readers some insight into the films they see, suggesting movies that may not be on their radar or tearing down films that may have undeservedly escaped critical admonishment.|
|Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?||We would prefer an interactive community. When it comes to more academic pieces, it stands to reason that not all readers will have the background to discuss the post; still, we hope those can be a learning tool regardless of education or prior experience studying film theory.|
|How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.)||Our site has been active since January 2012. We update the site on average 1-3 times per week with new posts.|
|Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).||Withnail and I, Matchstick Men, and The Iron Giant.|
|Name a movie you hate!!||Wild Wild West|
|How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one?||We heard about the LAMB via TotalFilm; the LAMB is listed as a friend of the site, so we decided to investigate further.|
|Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above. (optional)||“Are there any rules to reviewing film?”
Yes – there are two cardinal rules to reviewing films:
One, never spoil the movie. Ever. If you can’t talk about it without spoiling the plot, then don’t write the review.
Two, separate movies you like from movies that are good. Your opinion is valid and worth sharing, but do not let it cloud your observations when talking about a movie.
